More About P. Valve.... SpiderTrax Rocks!!

Well, I was able to locate a used one from a not so local salvage yard. $40 for the little bugger (NY prices)! Got it home, installed it and the next morning I discover it leaks worse than the one I had.

Back to the drawing board. I looked at Spidertrax's p vale kit and it looked promising. Cheaper than Suzuki and it would be one step closer to rear disks. I called them and spoke with Eddie. After explaining my situation and what I was considering doing, he said that with his kit the stock p.valve remains. Bugger! Shot down again.... He then mentioned that he has some good ones (Zook) available to sell and asked what I paid. He then said I could have one for $15 plus shipping. I jumped at it and it should be here late next week.
So Spidertrax gets one Attaboy from this old bird... [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

In the mean time, I reinstalled my original one as it leaked "less". Bleeding the brakes was less than what I had hoped for, but then again there is a leak in the system.

My question is, can I drive safely around till the one from Spidertrax arrives as long as I keep the fluid topped off?

IMO, yes. Fluid getting out is not so big a problem as air getting in. HTH

howdy,
if i am right, i think the stock proportioning valve works for both the rear and front brakes. but then again how long have you drive with it leaken before you noticed it? but if you got a bigg beefy front bumper, why worry. [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

While in my small reading room I saw a "P.valve" in a Summit book for $38 and thought of your post. JCC
